STTNG vote to beat out Dr Who!

Don't know if any of you even know about iO9 but they do an annual March madness and this one is for best Sci-Fi series ever. Now they have STTNG going against Dr Who. I'd like to plead with you all that STTNG needs to beat them out and at least make it to the final round which is against the original Star Trek.

It should just take a second, no registration, only a quick click:

Re: STTNG vote to beat out Dr Who!

Dr Who's too campy for me, but I love the premise.

Is there a way to find an image of the bracket that's large enough to actually read the matchups?

Yeah, I wish they had it bigger. See if this works, you may have to do ctrl-(scroll wheel on your mouse) to zoom in:

I think/hope that when the UK goes to sleep during the next hour or two all you North Americans will help TNG pull away and win

I am in the UK and have never watched Doctor Who so personally I cannot comment on the quality of that show. Between 1989-2005 Dr Who was forgotten about by the UK audience whereas Trek was going strong on TV for most of that period and as Trek left the screen Dr Who came back big in the UK.

You know, I didn't even think about that. Great point, it should help!

Some of those titles aren't even science fiction series.

I'm a big TNG fan but Who is comfortably the better show - leaves TNG in the dust.

Yes, because farting aliens taking over the British government is so great...

Judging Doctor Who on Russell T. Davies' hack work is like judging The Next Generation on Angel One or Shades of Grey.

Doctor Who comfortably beats any Star Trek show if taken as a whole. My life's main obsession.

Re: STTNG vote to beat out Dr Who!

Yes in your opinion Dr Who beats Trek but my opinion is the opposite and because I watched Trek as a young kid (no Dr Who around!) Trek is far superior to Dr Who

That said I do not wish to simply dismiss Dr Who and I respect that it may indeed be very good. Now my question is how do I watch the old Dr Who, which episodes do I choose etc is there a guide for a newbie somewhere?

Loved Dr Who as a kid. Unwatchable now, old and new.

Re: STTNG vote to beat out Dr Who!

Dr Who has some great episodes but overall is a bit too nonsensical and silly at times. STNG is much better top to bottom, and the blurays simply blow the show away.

If a 25 year old show beats out the current "hot" scifi show it would be pretty impressive.

You admit to never watching it so how would you know.

There is a Who sub forum on here - I'm sure people on there would have suggestions.
